{tab=Overview} Splatterhouse is a beat 'em up video game developed by Namco Bandai Games for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It was released in North America on November 23, 2010 and in Europe on November 26, 2010. It is a remake of the original Splatterhouse which was released in 1988. {tab=Video} {tab=Review (360)} Splatterhouse, is a refresh of a old arcade classic. The gameplay is way different, but the idea is the same. You play rick, a collage student who was seemingly left to die in a pool of his own blood. His girlfriend was kidnapped by some creepy doctor who is doing exparaments with wierd human eating monsters. While he is lying there dieing a old demon mask starts talking to him, and convinces Rick to put it on.

After putting the mask on, Rick grows into a monster himself. He gets huge muscles, becomes super tall, and likes to kill things. Well not really, the mask likes to kill things, and in order to save his girlfriend he must listen to the mask.

This game is bloody, like wow. You attack a monster and blood gushes everywhere. Sometimes, the enemies will flash red, which let's you do a splatter kill. That this envolves is grappling the enemy, then moving the analog sticks in the direction the screen tells you. In the process, Rick ends up doing one of the following: Ripping arms off, pulling a head apart by the jaw and pulling the nervous system out, squishing of the head with a big splat. This is really fun to do!

The puzzles in this game are twisted to say the least. One that comes to mind is scewering monsters with spikes to open a door to move on the level. Speaking of something twisted, well depends on how you look at it I guess, you collect parts of pictures of your girlfriend. You know the kind of pictures I mean. It off sets the disgusting gore of the game.

The music in the game is metalriffic, and I don't mean the Japanese metal that is usually in games. I mean Lamb of God metal. If this music were in any other game it would just annoy me, but in splatterhouse it works.

In conclusion this game is bloody, and loves the fact. You feel like you need to shower the whole time you are playing this because of how much blood sprays everywhere. I know that is what the game is all about, but some times it felt like to much, but not often.
